Your tour begins with a visit to Budapest’s Great Market Hall, where you’ll receive a helpful overview of the Hungarian produce. Your private guide will educate you about use of the country’s renowned paprika spice, as well as local meats and vegetables. Become a quick expert on how Hungarian meals are prepared while taking note of the ingredients called for in famous dishes.

After leaving the Great Market Hall, the next stop will take you through the city to the popular butchers and patisseries to sample classic delicacies like kolbasz (Hungarian sausage) and Dobos Torta, a sponge cake layered with chocolate butter cream and topped off with caramel. The delicacies provided will vary depending on the time of year that you visit.

After you have some food in your stomach, you’ll travel to a local shop for the wine-tasting portion of the tour. You’ll be offered three traditional Hungarian wines as your guide reveals the history and secrets behind each variety. The tour will conclude at a wine bar just a short walk from the Great Market Hall.

Our guide was very interesting and well versed in Hungarian food culture/history. All of the locations visited served excellent food and wines/aperitifs. Lots of good information about the various food/wines of Hungary. You really get your money's worth on this tour!

We did a food and wine tour of Budapest a few weeks ago with our guide Szofia. The great thing was there was only four of us so it was quite a personal tour where we were lead by Szofia to indulge in the magnificent food and the wine of Budapest and the surrounding regions. The market has a fantastic atmosphere and when we left there on foot and explored other locations eating and drinking our way around the streets of Budapest we had a thoroughly relaxed and enjoyable experience. The lunch Belvarosi Disznotoros was fantastic as we tasted a wonderfully wide range of food with every bite a delicious treat in an enjoyable atmosphere. The wine tasting at Tasting Time was also exceptional with delightful wines and delicious array of cheeses provided. Szofia provided a wonderful tour experience throughout with her breadth of information and her fantastic personality, style and relaxed conversation.

Sophia was the best tour guide, as we stopped through out Budapest to sample Hungarian food and drink. I highly recommend this tour, since you are educated on not only food and drink, but also the Hungarian culture, history and lifestyle.

We met our guide at the Central Market in Budapest and she took us on an incredible eating and drinking tour. She was very knowledgable about all the food and wine we were served. And it was a lot of food. Don't eat breakfast. This tour was well worth the cost and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a visit to this beautiful city.
